What is IVF with donor eggs?

IVF using donor oocytes is a program that gives a woman an opportunity to reach the desired pregnancy and give birth to a baby, even though she does not have her own oocytes.

Stages of egg donation treatment

  • Check the OvoPuzzle egg donor database on our website.

    We have created one of the best database of egg donors in Ukraine, which is user-friendly, with a huge number of young and healthy donors whose profiles contain comprehensive information about them.

  • Choose a suitable profile and contact our coordinator.

    Our English-speaking coordinator is always ready to help you with any issues..

  • Request an online/offline medical appointment with one of our fertility doctors to assess health and physical eligibility for treatment.

Our coordinator helps you to make an appointment with your preferred doctor.

  • In case of a positive doctor’s decision, you will receive an invoice for the chosen egg donation program.

    This invoice includes the price for a certain package, which you can pay at home or during your first visit to our clinic.

  • Donor stimulation (2 weeks) suitable for the program with fresh oocytes.

    To receive the donor’s oocytes we need to stimulate their ovaries. It takes 10-14 days, during which they have to have daily injections.

  • Donor OPU or oocytes thawing (if you choose a program with frozen oocytes).

    The procedure takes only 15-20 minutes with mild anesthesia. Two hours after the oocytes retrieval donors receive their medical prescriptions and can go home.

  • Oocytes fertilization

    After oocytes collection or thawing, they are fertilized with the sperm of the husband/partner/sperm donor. On the day of oocytes fertilization, we already need sperm. Therefore, a sperm sample of your husband/partner should be cryopreserved before starting the program. Or you can send it from your country if needed. In case you require donor sperm, you can order it before the start of the program.

  • Cultivation of embryos till the 5th day of their development

    Right after ICSI, the fertilized eggs are placed in an incubator. Under special conditions, close to those in the uterine cavity and on nutrient media, they start their division and path to becoming blastocysts on the 5th day.

  • Fresh embryo transfer or cryopreservation of blastocysts

    When the embryos reach the 5th day of development, embryologists assess their quality and only morphologically good embryos are used further in work. By prior agreement with patients, it is possible to transfer the embryo into the uterine cavity without freezing it.
    If patients decide to carry out pre-implantation genetic testing of embryos or embryo transfer is not possible due to problems, for example, with the endometrium, embryos are vitrified and stored in the cryostorage of our clinic, where they are constantly being properly cared for. In case of failure or after the birth of the first child, we also can recommend to use those embryos that have not been transferred before in order to reach the next pregnancy.

  • Embryo transfer

    Preparation for the embryo transfer normally takes 2-3 weeks from the beginning of your menstrual cycle. Moreover, you will need 3 visits to Nadiya Odessa for an ultrasound scan and medical prescriptions, or you can go through this stage in your own country. During this period of time you will have to take hormonal medications that first will help grow the endometrium thickness (estrogens), and then transform the endometrium (progesterone), so that it becomes receptive and accepts the embryo after the transfer.
    Embryo transfer is performed under ultrasound control with a full bladder (you must drink a sufficient amount of water 1-1.5 hours beforehand). The procedure takes only 3-5 minutes and is painless.
    After taking a seat in the gynaecological chair, the speculum is inserted into the patient’s vagina. Then, through the cervical canal, a soft catheter is inserted into the lower third of the uterine cavity. Afterwards, an internal catheter, where the embryo is located, is inserted into the soft one. Once the embryo is transferred into the uterine cavity, both catheters and speculum are removed. All instruments for this procedure are disposable.
    After that, the patient rests for 30 minutes in the ward, and having received the doctor's prescriptions, she can return home.

  • HCG after the embryo transfer

    To find out if pregnancy has occurred, you need to take an HCG blood test on the 14th day after the embryo transfer.

  • Ultrasound scan on the 28th day after the embryo transfer

    Еo find out clinical pregnancy + online consultation with your fertility doctor. Usually, it takes 2-4 months to go through the program with donor eggs till the embryo transfer.
